Expect thunderstorms this week, starting late Monday

Gasparilla is over, but dreary weather remains, and will continue for much of the week.

February's debut will be cloudy and breezy, with a few thunderstorms this week. The rain will start Monday night, meteorologists say.

Monday morning was chilly, around the upper 40s and low 50s across Tampa Bay, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Temperatures will climb to the low to mid 60s in the afternoon, which is below the day's average of 70, she said.

The rain should start this afternoon and last until Tuesday afternoon, said Rick Davis, National Weather Service meteorologist.

The cold front that brought showers over the weekend stalled and sent rain over South Florida, he said. But the front is heading back north, creating more rain for the bay area Monday night, he said.

Tuesday night and Wednesday should be dry, but another storm system will visit Thursday night and Friday.

The upside? It's likely we'll have a clear weekend, Davis said.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the Rays' roster in a bid to make the playoffs. But the team on the field didn't follow through in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Evan Longoria hits a solo home run in the fourth inning against the Yankees as the Rays come back from a 3-0 deficit to take a 5-3 lead. They lose 6-5 in 11.

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
